Reproductive cycles in <em>Bufo mauritanicus</em> (Schlegel, 1841) in a wet area of Beni-Belaïd (Jijel, Algeria)
Bufo mauritanicus is an anuran amphibian living in North Africa. Reproductive cycles of this species are not well known, especially in populations living in Algeria. This study is devoted to the knowledge of the reproductive cycle in a population living in the wet area of Beni Belaïd, under a Mediterranean climate characterized by two rainy seasons, January until May and September until December. The examination of the gonads of both sexes allowed us to describe continuous cycles in males and females.
